That's cool I always wanted one of those. Did it fire every lamp post? Was it easy to start?

It wasn't bad on start ups a bit tempermental depending on damp or dry weather conditions but I got the hang of setting the manual mag/point setting advance lever control be for kicking it over. The miss fires/kick back like the HD kickers would try to throw you off the bike as you may well know, and yes she was some what of a lamp post thumpper. Sure do wish I still had her today.

Bumping this, there has to be some new members that can contribute or other members that just missed it before. JC had a great idea here, would enjoy seeing some more of the throw backs.

Certainly not a chopper or bellbottoms but this was my 86 Heritage and I believe this was taken around 1987 or 1988.

Those are some great memory shots guys. I think you need to include long hair or just hair in the title! Ahhh the good old days.  ;D

No extras on the 68 sportster:

No battery, no turn signals, kick start, magneto, retard the spark, kick it thru two times slowly, half choke, kick it, it might start, but normally the 2nd real kick it did, advance the spark (left grip) and go.

Two buttons on the handlebars, Horn and the kill switch.

Straight pipes, great sound, still looking for that rumble. :)
